Numerous power-ups appear in this game, including a beer bottle, a flag of China, a baseball, and a portrait of Sarah Palin. These power-ups have often counter-intuitive effects, from erasing all the goo on screen (actually a good thing, as it cashes in your points and prevents the Cheep-Cheeps from taking any of the goo away) to subtracting points.
Goo uses an exceptionally unorthodox graphical style. VinnyVideo made all of the game's graphics - down to the fonts and HUD graphics - himself in MS Paint. The art was intentionally designed to project an unpolished, irreverent feel, but some criticized the graphics as being bad. More than anything, the look was a direct reaction to the poorly-made, generic-looking Hello SMB1 Engine games that were clogging up the mainsite updates at that time.
The game includes a few Easter eggs, mostly related to clicking on objects and hearing strange sound effects (including a British soccer announcer saying the line "What a terrible game!"). It also has a highly unorthodox title screen, where - for comic effect - Gooper Blooper sprays goo all over a disclaimer saying the author doesn't condone pollution of waterways. The game is obviously a subtle reference to the BP oil spill disaster.
Goo finished in last place in a relatively crowded competition voting. The game was rushed, and little real effort was put into it. The only review thus far gave the game a score of 4/10, citing its originality and randomness as being among its few positive traits. More than anything else, however, the game was ignored; its topic in the Development Center didn't see a single reply, a rarity even for one of the slowest periods in MFGG's history.
